Summary
God and Satan war over earth, and to settle things, they wager on the soul of Faust, a learned and prayerful alchemist. During a plague, Faust despairs and burns his books after failing to stop death. Satan sends Mephisto to tempt Faust, first with insight into treating the plague and then with a day's return to youth. Faust trades his soul for youth. Is there redemption? Who wins the wager?
